Trade: Elvis Andrus for Hanley Ramirez? WHIR

Postby MooseTacos » Sat Mar 12, 2011 2:51 pm

I'm in a typical 12 team Yahoo redraft league with scoring of:
Batters Stat Categories: Runs (R), Home Runs (HR), Runs Batted In (RBI), Stolen Bases (SB), On-base + Slugging Percentage (OPS)
Pitchers Stat Categories: Wins (W), Saves (SV), Strikeouts (K), Earned Run Average (ERA), (Walks + Hits)/ Innings Pitched (WHIP)

Guy has requested help with starting pitching. I'm trying to find a way to get Hanley Ramirez off him but I just want to be able to make a positive trade for my team while helping him out a little bit. Of course I want to win the trade but not give him the shaft. Can you guys figure a way out to strengthen my team while providing him help?

My Roster:
C Brian McCann (Atl - C)
1B Adrián González (Bos - 1B)
2B Brandon Phillips (Cin - 2B)
3B David Wright (NYM - 3B)
SS Elvis Andrus (Tex - SS)
CI Ian Stewart (Col - 3B)
MI Ian Desmond (Was - SS)
OF Colby Rasmus (StL - OF)
OF Michael Bourn (Hou - OF)
OF Brett Gardner (NYY - OF)
Util Carlos Quentin (CWS - OF)
SP Clayton Kershaw (LAD - SP)
SP Jon Lester (Bos - SP)
RP Joakim Soria (KC - RP)
RP Jeremy Hellickson (TB - SP,RP)
P Matt Cain (SF - SP)
P Josh Beckett (Bos - SP)
P Tim Hudson (Atl - SP)
P Colby Lewis (Tex - SP)
BN Scott Rolen (Cin - 3B)
BN Austin Jackson(Det - OF)

His Roster:
C Buster Posey (SF - C,1B)
1B Prince Fielder (Mil - 1B)
2B Kelly Johnson (Ari - 2B)
3B Ryan Zimmerman (Was - 3B)
SS Hanley Ramírez (Fla - SS)
CI Kendrys Morales (LAA - 1B)
MI Gordon Beckham (CWS - 2B)
OF Andrew McCutchen (Pit - OF)
OF Drew Stubbs (Cin - OF)
OF Shane Victorino (Phi - OF)
Util Billy Butler (KC - 1B)
SP Max Scherzer (Det - SP)
SP Clay Buchholz (Bos - SP)
RP Fernando Rodney (LAA - RP)
RP Craig Kimbrel (Atl - RP)
P Wandy Rodríguez (Hou - SP)
P Ted Lilly (LAD - SP)
P Ricky Romero (Tor - SP)
P Gio González (Oak - SP)
BN Ángel Pagán (NYM - OF)
BN Travis Snider (Tor - OF)

Obviously, if I want Ramirez I'll have to trade Andrus along with some pitching so he has a SS.
I've thought about Andrus/Kershaw for Ramirez as an offer but do you think that is too one-sided?
I don't want to offend the guy but I also want to win the trade too!

Any ideas?

WHIR

Thanks!

If i were you and he'd want Andrus I'd take that in a second try offering Beckett or Cain instead of going with Kershaw right away. But even if it comes to that maybe try to get Snider( ;-D ) or Romero as a throw in if you give Kershaw.
Help me out:

I like the Cain and Andrus Idea. Give him a solid SS and top shelf pitcher in return while not totally killing you pitching staff.

Please help;

I doubt the guy will take Andrus/Kershaw for Hanley, let alone Andrus/Cain or Beckett. I suppose it's worth a shot.

Thanks for the replies...I submitted the Andrus/Cain offer but haven't heard back yet.

I'll let you know how it turns out & what his counter offer is if he has one.
